      It is bad enough for us who have Sky, but those who don't will have to stump up about 600 quid for their years viewing to see all the races, I can't see many doing that

      I was amused by one of the BBC commentators who said .. and of course BBC have exclusive rights for radio on Five Live....How exciting, I can hardly contain myself, must dash to the toilet

      It should still be FTA on RTL on Astra 1 at 19.2 East albeit in German but with English commentary available on Radio 5 Live for those races not available on BBC. Last time I tried it DAB radio was very nearly in synch with TV picture.

      Not really, with the £millions that each sponsor pays a team each year.

      Sure,they get their publicity, but it is also a sport that reminds me of the series 'Mad Men' with all the young women being paraded around guiding people around.

      How many other sports are like this?
